in defense attorney and law professor joey jackson. joey, you know, on the surface this sounds big. almost unbelievable. >> huge. >> how could they have missed this, but i guess the question is if it hadn't been missed, if they had found this, if the prosecution had this in their hands, would it have changed the outcome? >> i think this is what we call outcome determinetive. how powerful would it have been for the prosecution to have evidence the day she went missing of a search that said "fool proof suffocation." i think it's a game changer. it's a huge miss on their part. even more importantly, the defense had this. how could the prosecution not? >> that's right. defense attorney jose baez said he knew about this all along and was actually waiting for it to come up. >> it never did. exactly. so interestingly enough, the question is asked, well, you ho could a defense attorney do that? don't we share information? the answer is yes but no, but here's what i mean. there's an obligation for what we call reciprocal discovery. if i have information, i have to give it to the prosecution so they
a couple of weeks ago in a full-throated defense, even angry defense of susan rice. but another meeting that susan rice had today was with senator bob corker of tennessee. yesterday he told reporters in the hallways that he thought she would be a better democratic committee chair than secretary of state. he was very careful not to say one way or the other how he would vote if she were nominated. but he did say a warning for the president. >> i would just ask that the president step back away from all of the buzz around this particular situation and take a deep breath and decide who is the best secretary of state for our country at this time when we have so many issues to deal with. >> reporter: the point that he made is that he and other senators view the role of secretary of state differently from other cabinet posts where traditionally senators tend to give senators the benefit of doubt that they could have whomever they want in their cabinet when they seat the secretary of state differently. another point of controversy in these meetings that susan rice has been having has nothing to
dome, and other u.s.-israeli missile defense programs. i'm sunling that that is something that the u.s. as well as the israelis certainly were talking about to actually bolster that defense system. >> it's worked rather well so far, that iron dome. it's israeli developed, but it's funded, in part, in large part, by the united states to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars so far. as part of this package deal, it looks like the u.s. is making a further commitment. the president of the united states to the prime minister of israel. that funding will continue, and the israelis have been pretty grateful about it. when i spoke to the israeli president shimon peres this morning, suzanne, he said that there would be a lot more israeli deaths, a lot more israeli injuries if it wasn't for this iron dome system that the u.s. has helped israel with in terms of funding and some technology development, and he was grateful to the united states. he was very profusive in his praise of president obama, and when i said to simon peres that it was only a few weeks ago that mitt romney, the republ
a third were intercepted by the iron dome defense system. this attack, a bomb, a public bus around lunch time, not far from israel's military headquarters. the blast wounded 24 people, added a new urgency to efforts to reach a cease-fire. the military wing of hamas tweeted to israelis, you opened the gates of hell on yourselves. 40 minutes after the bus bombing, our cameras captured this explosion in gaza city. all the while there was a flurry of diplomating activity. secretary clinton met with palestinian authority mahmoud abbas in the west bank and benjamin net ya knetanahu in ca. let's go straight to fred pleitgen where sirens have been going off earlier. and joining us is ben wedeman in the gaza strip, gaza city. fred, what are you seeing now in ashkelon? >> reporter: >> from ted pleitgen, have the rockets stopped in ashkelon? >> reporter: the rockets, yes, have stopped in ashkelon. it was interesting, because up until about a minute before our broadcast began, there were still booms that were heard in the sky. and about ten minutes ago we had to run for cover in ashkelon. now it app
of the doubt when it comes to repeat offenders. the detroit lions defensive taxle ndamukong suh should expect no leniency when the league reviews this play today. suh kicked houston quarterback matt schaub in the groin, at least it seemed that way during the lions thanksgiving day game. good morning, jamie. >> good morning, carol. how are you? >> i'm good. the nfl is supposed to review this play. do you think it's already made up its mind about suh? >> it sure sounds like it. ray anderson, vice president of football operations was quoted extensively over the weekend. he said what you just said. that is that past actions, past indiscretions will come into play. there was already a report from mike freeman of cbssports.com that suh will be sus penlded for at least one game. apparently he did kick him in the groin. i think when you look at that tape and we've all looked at it over and over again since thanksgiving day. he does roll over. it's hard to say he has control of his leg. there's that kind of secondary motion where it looks to me, like a lot of people he intentionally strikes schaub rig
. the leadership there, defense minister ehud barack. is he now quitting. he says he is going to spend more time with his family. his resignation will take effect in january. that's where fred is following the story from jerusalem. first of all, fred, it's kind of funny to hear him say that because everybody it is that, want to spend more time with the family. is there a back story to this, or is that the real deal? >> reporter: is terminal seems as though there is one. it is definitely a shocker here in israel. of course, ehud barack has been part of public life here for decades. he was the prime minister and now for the past seven and a half years was the defense minister. a very prominent person. also, of course, a big military figure here in this country. he says for his part that it is, as you say, for personal reasons. he wants to spend more time with his family. especially his grandchildren. there are many people here in this country who believe that it is, indeed, for political reasons. he is currently really riding a high in public opinion polls after the military campaign that israel w
it would only be used defensively. but i see this conflict in some ways migrating towards turkey. today we had thousands of people -- >> last thing turkey wants. >> well, know, it is what is happening because some of the aid for the rebels is coming through there. they now have bases with these patriot missile batteries used to protect the rebel bases there inside syria, but on the border with turkey. got the russians with a warship in the mediterranean. the u.s. has warships in the mediterranean. all of this says to us that this situation is coming to a peak or least our military and intelligence leaders think it is coming to a peak. you have two task forces there and both of them are saying, the americans are saying we are doing this in case we have to evacuate our civilians and the russians are saying exactly the same thing. >> something has to happen. jim clancy, thank you. >>> he was on the run for 14 years. until now. how the feds just caught one of america's most wanted fugitives. >>> plus, not even a week after the cease-fire with hamas, one of israel's leaders calling it quits now
to the defense sector. defense contractors will lose. it's not just big companies, boeings and lockheeds most defense work in the united states is done by independent companies so there are small company, software companies, provides that provide do the defense industry, small businesses that will get hit. the estimate the average family will pay up to $3500 more in taxes. that's if the worst happens. bottom line, what it will do, suzanne, it will reduce gdp, economic growth, that's stuff that creates jobs and slow the economy down to we'reoo sensitive to being slowed down. >> explain now the debt ceiling plays in the talks. >> the debt ceiling will run out january, maybe early february, depending on how the treasury moves things around. last time they were able to move payments around so they didn't miss anything. that's part of this. it's not part of the fiscal cliff, but it's an area that the republicans feel very strongly about. they're use it as leverage. john boehner said as much to the president. people say the debt ceiling thing is an albatross. most countries don't have a debt limit.
. >> the iron dome, israel's missile defense system is working phenomenally. many of its rockets, because of this iron dome, are not hitting their targets. could we see more attacks on the streets by terrorists, like in this bus attack? >> that's true, iron dome is an amazing success story, first anti-rocket device in history to actually work in warfare. we've taken down about 90% of the terrorist rockets that would have hit in our cities. they're going to hit outside the cities. and, yes, the terrorists will try anything to get at our civili civilians. we've seen it before. many, many bus bombings like this. we've all lost friends. i've lost a close family member in those bus bombings. they're very, very close for us. >> do activievents like this complicate secretary hillary clinton's efforts? >> they certainly don't help. where terrorists in gaza cannot open fire on us every week and paralyze half the country when they will. also the goal is to prevent iran from smuggling advanced weaponry and rockets into gaza that the terrorists then fire at our civilian. >> israeli ambassador to the
was intercepted by the iron dome missile defense system. if everything remains this relatively quiet until 2:00 eastern this afternoon, the gaza border crossings will open. rallies opened in the streets as they celebrated what they call a victory over israel. the prime minister says he's dedicated the victory to that man, ahmed al ja'abari, killed in that air strike. as you know, that air strike inciting the fighting. hopeful that the cease fire will hold? >> reporter: the longer it does hold, as each hour goes by, people do grow more hopeful it will, in fact, be sustained. people are very aware that at this point in time it is still a very short-term solution as the looming issue of a long-lasting peace deal does still remain elusive. for the first time since this all began last wednesday, we are not seeing deserted streets in gaza. we're not hearing air strikes, various artillery rockets being fired in the distance, not hearing the wail of sirens. quite the contrary. people were in the streets since the cease fire was first announced last night. earlier, after midday prayers, chanting for
instead. >> everybody talks about the defense warnings the president came up with are colossal. is that not enough to assuage republicans? are they really focusing on the entitlement? the three, big three entitlement reforms? >> everybody knows if they're honest you need three things to get a deal done. you need spending cuts. you need tax revenue increases. and you need entitlement reform. and so this is where -- whether it's bowles-simpson, except for the professional activists -- >> do you call them wing nuts, or are they beyond wing nuts? >> wing nuts is a specialized term for a kind of crazy. these are more hard-core activists and ideologues. they're the problem in t washington. >> people say this will come down to two people -- obama and boehner and whether they can get their ducklings to follow them. >> herding the cats question. boehner's hand is strengthened after this election. republicans need to understand that that ideological obstructionism was rejected by the electorate. president obama is a stronger position in to see get the deal done. may look a lot like what
a week or two ago. >> reporter: israel has multiple defenses now. iron dome batteries can strike roux launched 45 miles away. its longer-range arrow missiles can detect targets 300 miles away. it's designed to go squarely after a ballistic missile attack from iran. a new weapon called david's sling falls right between. able to hit missiles and rockets fired from to 150 miles away like a threat coming out of hezbollah targets in lebanon. so long the supply question is out there, as long as rockets and missiles keep getting smuggled into gaza the question of when there might be some real permanent end to hostilities still remains very much, of course, wolf, an open question. wolf. >> certainly does, barbara. thanks very much for that report. once again, we're following what's going on in cairo right now. we'll update ow the secretary of state hillary clinton. she's meeting with the egyptian president mow morsi. will there be a cease-fire or not?

's arsenal of weapons. israel had a successful combat debut of iron dome. u.s.-funded defense shield that kept dozens of rockets from hitting israeli civilians. the counter point to that is ironic. hamas emerges a a big winner from this conflict and its truce. >> hamas has emerged stronger. it's consolidated control over gausa. they may yet manage to get an easing of the blockade if a more presence e deal welcome back done. >> look what they've accomplished. they, rather than abbas, has put the palestinian issue back on the international stage. >> reporter: that brings us to those that have lost much in this conflict. mahmoud abbas and his fatah faction. the palestinian leaders were supposed to be the moderate peace brokers. now they can't even claim to speak for all palestinians and proved they have no leverage with hamas, their arch-rival. >> this is not a good outcome for abbas and the two-state solution. >> always a player, riran's han is arguably weaken the. iron dome shot hundreds of missiles out of the sky. what if israel attacks iran? can it still call on hamas to retaliate?
. >> they lost their key defense chief also. there was another player the past few days. mohamed morsi. he's largely credited by the u.s. for helping the ceasefire happen. he did something extraordinary overnight. he gave himself some new administrative powers which makes all his rulings immune from any kind of legal challenges. some people are saying this is just the next step of becoming more of a dictator here. was he taking advantage of the situation? >> well, we'll have to watch this closely. it appears the timing is curious. he's gotten the support and this bump particularly for his role in mediating the ceasefire from the united states and from others. he's seen as emerging stronger from this. this goes back to a time when egypt was appointed by mubarak and a check on the executive branch. what he said this is temporary. until the have a constitution, a temporary step. so we'll have to see if anything looks like it's being put into place permanently, could be a big problem for democracy. >> thanks to stuart holliday from the united nations. hmm, it says here that cheerios helps lowe
have been released by the defense department. a few days earlier that strike group commander had asked another officer do i need any special religious certificate remonth niall preparations. after bin laden's burial at sea an admiral describes the scene. traditional procedures were followed. his body was washed and placed in a white sheet. the body was placed in a weighted bag. a military officer read prepared religious remarks which were translated in to arabic by a native speaker. after the words were complete the body was placed on a prepared flat board, tipped up, where upon the deceased's body slid into the sea. according to the emails there aren't many witnesses. in response to the question any sailors watched the burial the heading of one e-mail says burial no sailors watched and another says only a small group of the leadership was informed. less than as to total. another indication of the skrecy of that part of the mission, an e-mail from the top admiral to general mullen. the paucity of documentary evidence in our possession is a reflection of the emphasis. the deputy command
is a criminal defense attorney. how valuid is this claim? >> you know, i didn't really see it. i actually watched the documentary, because that is a tantalizing lead, who else killed them? he is sitting on death row, the execution is pending in florida. so i think it is an attempt. multiple things going on here, he wants to prolong the execution, because if he has information, they will say give him the stay, we'll find out what he knows. also, it is full of information, the family members are sort of all jumping on this bandwagon, so i am not sure there is a lot of credence. the evidence just doesn't match any of the other murders that he committed. and the other murders are women that he was involved with sexually. that he just met, he was not a robber, per se, just a cold-blooded killer. and these patterns, they don't fit. >> are they just looking into it? >> he made claims, claims he took a gold angel pen off of nicole after he murdered her, mailed it to his mother, said wear it during one of the murder trials. so of course they're going to go back and interview him, did she have a pe

now. right before the conflict started, you visited one of israel's largest defense manufacturers and you got an exclusive and pretty neat look at one of the country's most valuable resources, the drone. so why do israelis feel they need to keep drones in the air at all times? >> these drones are these unmanned piloted systems. so essentially it's cheaper for them to do this, and they were there before the conflict and they are going to remain after the conflict and the number one reason i could tell you, martin, is surveillance. these are these high-tech equipment and they have great surveillance capabilities. we went to a place near the israeli aerospace industries where they build the cameras they put inside the drone. the amount of surveillance they're able to do, especially in such a fragile situation, i spoke to an engineer where they handcraft the cameras. he said you can see if someone is carrying a stake or a weapon. i could see your shoes from miles and miles away. that's becoming increasingly important and it's cheaper for them to do it. they don't have to put a pilot i

that national defense is very important, but i'm willing to say that not all money spent on the military is sacred. so i would compromise there. but i'm not willing to raise taxes when we're still spending $300,000 a year on robotic squirrels to watch rattlesnakes attack a robotic squirrel that doesn't wag its tail to see whether or not the rattlesnake will still attack the robot squirrel. $300,000. $2 million spent on how we can convince chinese prostitutes not to drink so much on the job. there is a huge amount of waste. >> i can hear the americans shaking their heads. let me ask you this, if you compromise on defense what about possib possibl possibly, senator paul, raising t the age. would you be on board with that? >> yes, i don't think we have to trade tax increases for entitlement reforms. we should fix entitlements because they're broken. >> shouldn't democrats and republicans give at the same time? i know democrats say, hey, we won the election, but let's be fair. >> the way i look at it is is entitlements are broken. it is not my fault. it is not democrats' fault. it is because

to avoid falling over the so-called $7 trillion fiscal cliff. it would have a combination of t defense cuts, expiration of the pay roll tax holiday, and cuts in unemployment benefits. all those things are considered. joining us now is alex. it's good to see you. >> good to see you, fredricka. >> before we get to that fiscal cliff, let's talk about one of the things they talk about, whether it's raising taxes, revenue, however you want to define it. republican senator saxby chandless of georgia broke ranks with grover norquist and his anti-tax pledge. he signed the pledge after he first ran in 2008. but here's what he told our cnn affiliate in macon, georgia, about his commitment thus far to that pledge. >> times have changed significantly, i care more about the country than i do about a 20-year-old pledge. i think we owe the debt and we got to figure out a way to pay it. >> and of course, that pledge creator, grover norquist, fired back on cnn "the situation room" just yesterday. >> the commitment he made to the people of georgia was not to me. it was a written commitment to the people of g
